Salute in honor 75th anniversary of the lifting of the siege of Leningrad


Contributor chill_side put together this terrific drone video of the city of St. Petersburg as it celebrated the 75th anniversary of the end of history's deadliest siege during World War II.  In September, 1941, three months after invading the USSR, the forces of Nazi Germany surrounded the city, which was then known as Leningrad.   During the ensuing 900 days, it's estimated that over a million civilians perished, mostly from hunger, exposure, and disease.  Leningrad was liberated by the Red Army in January, 1944.
